Your Favorite Celebrities without Makeup

Makeup

You rarely see your favorite celebrity out and about if they aren’t dolled up properly. It’s one of the perks of their job, and we can’t help but admire and envy them at the same time for it. But are they still going to look the same if their faces are free of makeup? If they don’t have the expertise and ‘protection’ of their makeup artists?

Take a look at some of the most famous faces in the media and find out for yourself.

Drew BarrymoreDrew Barrymore

Drew Barrymore has always been beautiful, makeup or none, and you can’t really tell much difference from how she looked back when she was still a child star and how she looks now. Here she is sipping a cocktail, with no trace of makeup, looking young, fresh and relaxed.

Kate UptonKate Upton

This photo of Kate Upton was just taken last month, and it looked like her face is looking a little pale without makeup on. Maybe it’s just the tiring flight that got to her but she doesn’t look at all that bad either. What do you think though?

Zooey DeschanelZooey Deschanel

We love everything about Zooey Deschanel, and we love her more for posting this totally honest photo of her without the glam, looking like she just got out of bed. Oh wait, she actually just got out of bed in this picture! How cool and confident our ‘it’ girl is! And that’s why we love her!

Gwyneth PaltrowGwyneth Paltrow

We can’t help but admire Gwyneth for posting this photo of hers looking refreshed and plain, just like everybody else without the makeup. Her face may look simple, but there’s no denying that she’s positively glowing. Health regimen must be working!

There you go folks… Just some of your favorite Hollywood actresses without the makeup. Love them or hate them? It’s totally up to you!

What’s the best haircut for my face shape?

Face Shape

It’s easy to get caught up with hair trends, even if they don’t really suit your face. It’s a sin we’ve all committed before, so that’s alright. However, you might want to consider getting it right this time. And it all starts by making sure what your face shape is!

If you have an Oval Face…

Oval FaceBring on the bangs! If you have a long face, bangs across your brow line aren’t just going to do wonders on the length of your face, it will also add a flattering width.

Oval Face 3A nice bob with side-swept bangs – Do your bob until the shoulder, you’re going to look oh so sweet that way.

Shoulder length or longer tresses with a part at the center – Straight or with waves, it’s gonna go a long way!

Or if you wanna go short… Show off your neck with a funky cut like Rihanna’s, though she’s sporting a different ‘do now.

If you have a Heart-shaped Face…

Heart ShapedA deep side part would be good, just like the one Reese Witherspoon has right here.

Heart Shaped 2Pixie Cut – Adorable, clean, and if you add side-swept bangs, you’ll look instantly gorgeoooous!

You can also go for a bouncy, healthy bob. A cut below the jaw will do wonders to your face.

If you have a Round Face…

Put your hair up into a sleek pony! No need to change anything on your hairstyle, and it costs $0 (that is, if you already have elastics ready)!

Round Face 2Long layered tresses – Part it at the center, cut it past the shoulder, and make sure that a few strands hit the jaw. Sexy.

Round Face 3Or go Assymetrical – Be adventurous by going for an uneven haircut that has different lengths. Part it at the side and add side-swept bangs too for an instant slimming effect.

If you have a Square Face…

Go for the tousled,layered look to draw the attention away from the squareness of your face.

Square Face 2You could also go for long, wavy tresses to hide a bit of your jawline.

Or just go for the classic long and straight look!

Now that you know. it’s time to look at yourself in the mirror and decide if you do have the right haircut for your face shape. Does it flatter your delicate face angles in all the right places? Does it brighten up your face? Because if it doesn’t it’s high time for you to head on out to the salon and get the ‘do that’s right for you!

Don’t be scared. Embrace the change. You’re going to love it for sure!

Rihanna Wore What?!

Just when you though Rihanna couldn’t possibly do anything else that would shock you, then she steps out into the limelight wearing a glittery fishnet halter dress that leaves nothing, as in literally nothing to the imagination.

Rihanna 2

But c’mon guys. It’s Rihanna. Only she can outdo herself. You only need to check out her Instagram to realize that we ain’t messin’ with ya.

Rihanna was honored at the annual Council of Fashion Designers of America Awards on June 2nd with the Fashion Icon Award and she made sure that everyone in the room (and the rest of the world actually) deemed her worthy of the much coveted prize.

Well. It looked like she was able to pull it off, as she walked up the stage and was presented with the trophy by no less than the Queen of Ice herself, Anna Wintour. If she gave it, then we all believe it.

But does Ms. Wintour approve of the racy ensemble? Maybe we’ll never know.

Rihanna 1Rihanna has been called many, many names in the name of fashion. But being a ”risk-taker” seems to describe her best.

Imagine yourself walking down the red carpet, with some of the most famous designers in the world surrounding you, and your nipples and derrier are showing for all to see.

Though it looks like Rihanna made sure she was picture-perfect for the event. She showed off her curves looking like she doesn’t have a care in the world. And guess what? She looked STUNNING.

But what do you think of this look, guys? Is it a yay or a nay? Is it too bold, or is it Rihanna being just Rihanna? Tell us what you think!

Blue is Mariah’s Color

Mariah

Mariah Carey looks like she’s either enjoying motherhood a little too much or getting awfully busy promoting her latest album, ”The Elusive Chanteuse”. Or maybe it’s a little bit of both?

Either way, we are so happy to be seeing her out in public again—and it looks like she hasn’t lost an ounce of that glamour at all. As she stepped out into the limelight at the Fresh Air Fund Honoring Our American Hero event in New York City, all eyes were on her and her dazzling dress. Everybody was just drinking up her curves in a bright blue gown accessorized by her va-va-voom cleavage, a few bracelets, and, uhm, silver fingerless gloves?

Well, that one, is a bit of a puzzler. Actually, it’s something that we’re having a hard time trying to understand—but that’s how stars roll, I guess. And they can get away with practically anything. At least, that’s what they think they can do.

After the event, Mariah Carey took to the subway to finish her night out in town, and tweeted a photo of herself, complete with her couture, definitely riding the train. How cozy is that, eh? After all, she’s a diva. And divas rarely ride the subway—so this is definitely something worth seeing.

Aside from motherhood and promoting her new album, she was also presented the Pop Icon Award at the World Music Awards held in Monaco. There was a bit of a ruckus though as she arrived almost an hour late, and that didn’t sit well with the producers because she was also the opening act.

Oh well. It looks like she pulled it off magically and made peace with the people in the event. As you can see, she’s as dazzling as ever and not a hair out of place. It’s something only Mariah can do.

America Ferrera’s Dress at the Cannes Film Festival Stole the Show

america ferrera

..But not in the way you would expect. Sure her cream, plunging gown was exquisite, but it was what happened to it that got people talking—not the dress itself, which was a Georges Hobeika creation. In fact, it took us a while to find out who she was wearing that day. The whole Twitter world was abuzz with what happened, but no one was really asking about the dress—or how gorgeous she was that day!

americaAlright, before we get into the details, America Ferrera was wearing a cream tulle skirt with a beaded top that had a plunging scalloped neckline. And yes, she really did look gorgeous in it.

But what happened exactly, that got everyone (including the people around her) so dumbfounded afterwards?

Said Ms. Ferrera on an interview: ”I don’t even know what happened. I feel something behind me, and there’s this guy under my dress, and then two guys drag him away!”

Which was exactly what happened. A man crawled down towards her and under her gown, unbeknownst to Ferrera, who was posing for photos along with the rest of the cast of ‘How To Train Your Dragon 2.’

america 2By the time she (and everyone else) turned around, security was already dragging a man away from the scene.

It just so happened that it was the same Ukrainian prankster that tried to kiss Will Smith in the mouth—and who got a slap from the actor himself—back in 2012. His name is Vitalii Sediuk and he was also the same man who tried to press his face in between Bradley Cooper’s legs–and just recently, do the same thing with Brad Pitt at the Maleficent Premiere. What a nut.

Kate Middleton: A Duchess, Mother and A Fashion Icon

72 Fashion and Me

She may not be a Hollywood celebrity but she is far more than that being of royalty. While she is naturally beautiful in every possible angle, the world cannot help but be amazed of her unmistakably amazing fashion sense as she sports different looks from the same pieces of wardrobe each and every time she steps out of the royal castle.

There is no other royalty to be photographed as much as Kate Middleton aside from the late Princess Diana. In fact, their styles have been compared right from the very start. From mainstream British designers to A-list designers, all of them dreams of dressing up the Duchess of Cambridge. Even the famous Hobbit director seems to be enthralled by Kate Middleton’s beauty as he took a picture of her using his phone when he toured them at the Omaka Aviation Heritage Center.

The royal couple is currently in New Zealand for the 2014 Royal Tour. The absolutely gorgeous baby prince George is with them. From day 1, Kate Middleton showed an impeccable taste of fashion. She wore a MaxMara blue-grey cross hatch wraparound print dress matched with nude shoes. The royal family is said to have been on the first class cabin of Qantas flight to Sydney where they transferred to a private flight to New Zealand.

The Duchess of Cambridge was also seen carrying a Longchamp Le Pliage Tote in short handle. When the royal family landed in Wellington, New Zealand, she was wearing the gorgeous bright pillar-box red coat by Catherine Walker. She is a designer that was also once a favorite of the late Princess Diana. To complete the whole outfit, she matched the dress with brown pumps and clutch from Emmy Shoes.

Pharrell’s Hideous Hat May Not Be As Hideous As We Thought

We didn’t understand it, we thought it was ugly the moment we saw it, but for some reason Pharrell Williams still kept on wearing it, even after we all laughed our heads off just to prove a point.

The night he debuted that “article of clothing”, social media just went crazy spewing out joke after joke after joke after joke—it was hilarious!

Is It Alive?

We’re talking about no other than Pharrell’s silly, oversized fedora hat, folks. He didn’t just wear it to the Grammys, he wore it to the Oscars too—and danced with Meryl Streep while it was sitting on top of his head. Meryl Streep! That’s enough to make even the foulest garbage famous overnight!

But you know what? All the attention that silly hat might have gotten could have just brought Mr. Williams more good karma than he thought. As it turns out, the moment he put it up for auction on eBay, it sold for a whopping $44,100 bid. WHOA!

Who’s laughing now?

Passion For Fashion—Or So We Thought

The Vivienne Westwood hat was bought by famous fast-food chain Arby’s, which had a logo very much similar to Pharrell’s hat—what a coincidence!

It’s unbelievable how this sort of ugly fashion can creep its way into our hearts—but it did. I’m definitely going to think of that horrid hat with such fondness now, especially since I learned the proceeds are all going to charity.

It just proves Pharrell doesn’t just have a big hat, he has a big heart too. And that NEVER goes out of style.
